Health of tlio Flock.
There is no higher proof of the in
telligence of the shepherd than the ex
emption of his flock from the cumcr
ours ailments to which they arc sub
ject under bad management, says
"American Sheep Drecder." The man
who so carefully watches for every in
dication of disease, and thereby is en
abled to head it oil, a"nd of whose flock
it may be said "there is absolutely
nothing the matter with them," has
intelligence enough to sit in congress
and make laws on a wide range of sub
jects. The wise flockmastcr has his
eves in evcrv Dlacc and his nostrils
also for there arc few avenues by
which disease more frequently ap
proaches than that of polluted air.
When he enters the sheep house in
the morning out of the wholesome out
side air and notices at once a sicken
ing bheepy reck, he may be certain
there is something wrong, and that he
wi.i hear from it presently in a very
emphatic manner. There ought to be
glass windows in the sheep house, high
enough up, of course, to prevent the
sheep from breaking them even if they
rear up; and the lower panes may be
still further protected by a
crossbar or two. This elevation will
keep the cold air from striking the
sheep directly; it will pass above them
and And exit through corresponding
windows on the other side. These are
to be closed tight only on the most
bitter cold nights. If a sudden squall
arises in the night it is better that a
little snow should blow in than that
the air should become fetid and sick
ening. Hut the entrance of the snow
may be mostly prevented by wide,
overhanging eaves. To provide for
still, sultry weather, .sueii as happens
in spring, when there is no brcc.e to
blow the animal exhalations out of
the building, there ought to be one or
more trunks rising to the roof .vlierc
a slatted cupola permits their escape.
These same trunks can be utilized
through which to pitch hay down
from the loft to the racks below. Nor
is it enougli merely to provide for the
passive escape of thetc harmful exhala
tions; there ought to be active meas
ures taken to prevent any addition be
ing made to them by means of fer
menting manure. Through the winter
the manure may accumulate to a con
siderable depth without causing any
serious detriment, especially if it U
not intermingled with bedding. 15ed
ding permits air to circulate through
the manure and thereby promotes
ferment and the escape of ammonia.
Hut as the warm weather of spring
comes on, there will be more or less
fermentation in spite of every precau
tion; and the careless farmer is made
AN ANGELN COW FROM
aware of its presence in his horse-sta
ble oucn, we regret to say, also in
his sheep-house strong enough almost
to "knock a man down," as he saj's.
Now, if a farmer is saluted with such
a stifling odor when lie enters the
sheep-house, with his nostrils elevated
five or six feet above the floor, what
must he suppose is the experience of
the sheep which is condemned to an
all-night's imprisonment in such a
reek, with its nostrils only five or six
inches above the floor? At his eleva
tion he may hardly perceive an odor
which, down where the sheep lives
and breathes, is enough to sicken it
and eventually kill it As soon as the
sheep begin to range a little on grain
feed, it is more difficult than ever to
suppress these most noxious ammonia
cal exhalations in the stable. If the
manure has been cleaned out (as it
should be) the hard earthen floor will
need to ba kept constantly bedded
with fine, dry bedding, or sprinkled
with land-plaster or road-dust in order
to aosoro inc liquid manure, wtueii is
so valuable to crops but so pernicious
ss a source of exhalations in a stable.

Seeing various articles in different
farm papers in regard to raising calves
on separator milk, I think I will relate
my experience along that line, says a
writer in "Nebraska Farmer." I am a
woman and like all the rest, "kinder
queer," and could never be persuaded
to sell cream, thinking I could make
more from it by churning and selling
the butter myself. If you arc all as
strong as lions and have good custom
ers and get the top price I presume you
can, not counting your time and labor,
but to my subject. Two years ago our
creamery folks were putting in separat
ors and wanted the people to sell milk,
but it was hard to get out of the ruts.
I thought I would try it, for I do not
like to make butter in hot weather,
and my health was poor, so I was the
first to send my milk. I had three
young calves soon after and they
never had a drop of any
other than separator milk after
they were fifteen da-s old, and three
nicer calves no farmer man can raise
by letting their calves run with the
cow. and last year I raised three more
the same way.and if the Nebraska peo
ple don't believe it, if they will come
to Fairmont they may tee the calves.
The first week I would put the milk in
water to try to keep it sweet for them,
but it was not long until I would not
get my milk back until it was almost
clabber cheese. 1 would poar into a
bucket when it was a hard cake and
the calves would drink the whey and
then cat the chunks. After they are
two weeks old I put a box or trough
where they can reach it and put about
a pint of bran, ground feed or oats,
just whichever we have, and they -very
soon begin to cat it and nibble hay if
cold weather, or grass in summer, and
they are as fat and nice as need be.
The only way to make the best of a
well bred pig is to crowd it from birth
to maturity, studying the wants and
habits, and feed in the way best calcu
lated to secure the best results at the
India's Wheat Crop.
The Indian government has pub
lished its first general memorandum
on the wheat crop of Hritish India for
the season of lS'.t.l-O.. So far as can
be judged from the reports sent in the
area sown will in ttombay and Uerar
be slightly below, in the central and
northwestern provinces about equal
to, and in the Punjab somewhat larger
than that sown last year. In Sind,
which depends on inundation over
flows, the rains failed, and the floods
were low and late, while in manv parts
of the Hombay presidency proper an
unfavorable wheat-sowing season, fol
lowing on a favorable cotton-sowing
season, has led to a contraction of the
former in favor of the latter crop. The
heavy rains of November caused con
siderable delay in the Uerar sow
ings, and led in the central prov
inces, as did the October rains in thr
northwestern provinces, to the resow
ing of a certain part of the land. Tin.
rains were not favorable in the south
east or in the extreme west of the
Punjab; but, generally speaking, the
good rainfall of September last led in
that province to extensive sowings,
and the area under wheat is estimated
to be C per cent over the large area
sown last year. The condition of the
early crop is reported over the greater
part of Hombay to be good or fair,
and a satisfactory outturn is expected
in Kcrar. In the central provinces
prospects are exceedingly promising,
and a full harvest is anticipated. The
crop in the uorlhwcstern provinces is
good on the whole, and in the P un jab
the outlook is at present unusual
I'aruiliiR in Italy.
Ix a sketch of agriculture in Italy,
and with special reference to the crisit
now prevailing there, Signor Calanti
gives some particulars as to the actual
state of affairs, which are of consider
able interest in view of the present de
pression, says "London Live Stock
TournaL" He states that the area of
land under cultivation is about 00,000,
000 acres, of which nearly one-fifth is
in wheat, with a yield of about 11
bushels per acre, while about 5,000,000
acres are devoted to Indian corn, the
yield being about 17 bushels an acre.
About 500,000 acres are devoted to rice,
or rather more than is sown in oats;
barley and rye occupying very little
space, while about two million acres
arc occupied by leguminous plants.
Passing over a very interesting cnu-
THE LOW COI'XTRIKS OF f-CHLES
liberation of the various fruits which
arc grown in such large quantities
throughout Italy, it may be added
that, so far as the live stock is con
cerned, Signor Galanti puts the total
at 5,000,000 head of cattle,
0,000.000 sheep, 1, $00,000 goats,
1, MX). 000 pigs, 720,000 horses, and
l,:i0(,000 mules and donkeys. 4 The
value of the 12,000 tons of wooL&aken
from the sheep, and of the 14ju00 tons
of butter and cheese, is put at 3,130,
000, and. in concluding lrjj review of
the situation, Signor Galanti recog
nizes that since the definite constitu
tion of the kingdom of Italy the upper
classes have exhibited a great interest
in agriculture, but that the number of
those who take a direct and practical
part in farming ,4s very limited, ab
senteeism being still too firmly rooted
in the habits of the large lauded pro
prietors. Farmers Revicw.-
lTpon the Hritish Isles the wild hog
was found in different sections of the
couutries, and varied in size and ap
pearance according to the climate and
products in which they were found,
living upon various roots, as well as
upon the herbage, nuts, acorns and the
like, says Amos F. Wood. Thev were
chased and hunted down by sportsmen
and used as food for man. As they
became domesticated the3' were
changed by crossing and selecting, ac
cording to person's taste and the cli
mate and products of the countries
where bred. Coarser ones were im
proved by crossing with the Siamese
hog. which in early days was repre
sented as fine lonad and rather
small. Later in history, wc find in
various counties of England they were
breeding swine, and calling or naming
them after the county where they
lived, as Yorkshire, Suffolk, I.erk
shire, and the like, while
they by domestication have
spread over nearly the whole world.
The hog was not a native of America
but brought here by the earliest voy
agcrs.and has now multiplied through
out the continent The flesh of the
hog is nutritivo and wholesome, and is
used in almost all climates, and
through its keeping qualities seems to
be suited to the warm season and
countries. The color of the hog is
various, black, brown, sandy and
white, and a mixture of all or. any of
the above colors. The Essex was
originated by Lord Western of Essex
county, Englanl. The native hog be
ing crossed with Neapolitan, a breed
imported from Italy. Afterward by
selection and breeding they were im
proved by Fisher Hobbs. They are a
small boned, black hog, with generally
an erect car, and arc distinguished by
the fineness of the skin and softness of
the hair, with fine grained and deli
cious meat. They arc suited to take
the refuse of farms and feed upon past
ures, as they arc very quiet and make
pork cheap and of desirable quality.
Sekvia is said to export 3,000,000
worth of prunes annually from 175,000
acres. Agricultural education prevails
in all her public schools, with special
attention to fruit culture.
Hritish Columbia sends warning
that she will allow no Oregon fruit to

Investlgations Concerning Abortion.
Stock-breeders will be glad to know
that the Royal Agricultural society of
England has arranged to investigate
this plague, which in some seasons and
localities causes ruinous losses to
breeders and dairymen, and hitherto
has not been amenable to ordinary
treatment, says "North Hritish Agri
culturist." A committee has been ap
pointed, and fourteen questions have
been circulated fairly covering the
breeders' portion of the inquiry. It is
recognized that the pregnant female
subjected to mechanical violence
Eomctimes aborts, and that the mishap
is also occasionally produced by over
exertion and acute indigestion. Hut
the most serious spreading and recur
ring attacks occur under all varieties
of management and diet, at all sea
sons of the year, in animals housed
and at pasture, and at all periods of
pregnancy. Ergot, sarin, and other
a terine stimulants are quite inadequate
to explain the occurrence of many out
breaks, notably those where oat straw
and a few roots constitute the
winter feed. The epizootic and
enzootic attacks arc undoubtedly
of a communicable or con
tagious character. Various conti
nental and other experimenters have
found that the discharge from
the genitals of recently aborted
cows or " ewes caused abor
tion when introduced on pledgets
of lint, or by injection into the genital
passages of healthy pregnant cows, or
ewes brought from situations where
the mishap had never been known.
That the abortion thus induced docs
not result from any mechanical effect
is show by the fact that the introduc
tion of normal genital discharges, or
of aseptic albuminous fluids, produces
no injurious effects. The specific na
ture of the abortion-contagion a few
years ago was discovered by Professor
Xocard, who found in the uterus of
cows which had aborted, and in the
alimentary canal of aborted fu-tuses, a
distinctive organism, which, although
carefully looked for, could not le dis
covcrel in healthy cows, or in the di
gestive organs of calves carried to
their full time. These organisms arc
believed to enter thc-gcnital passages,
make their way into the uterus, and
multiply between the ftetal envelopes,
breaking up the connection between
mother and offspring. Hased upon
these observations, the prevcntible
treatment of abortion has become
more rational and successful. Affect
ed subjects are disinfected, strictly iso-

dressed with corrosive sublimate solu- !
tion: and the vulva, tail head, and hind
quarters of the in-calf cows arc also 1
repeatedly washed with sublimate or
other effectual solution, in order to de- '
stroyany organisms that may have
lodged upon them. Investigations 1
thus far appear to be on the right ,
track; the nature of tiie disease seems I
to be realized, and its prevention
should Iteiicc be greatly facilitated. A
good deal, however, has still to be
learned regarding the life history of
, tnc organism. Competent investiga- j
. lions should throw light upon its
, origin, and explain how the first case
in an outureau arises Do the organ- '
isms or their spores, it may be asked, I
have an independent existence outside
the animal's body? In the uterine dis
charges there are normal and innocent ,
organisms which, under certain faulty 1
conditions of the parts, may possibly
be developed into abnormal and injuri- '
0113 organisms. Can the parturient '
discharge from a cow. which has car
ried its calf to the full period, owing ,
to placental retention or other unto- '
ward conditions, afford suitable media
for the production of the organism
which caus.es abortion? Problems j
such as these have to be solved before ,
wc can fully understand and effectively
grapple with abortion. )

Our Lillle Friend, the Chipmuck.
The chipmuck likes to dig his hole in
these dry banks, ami you may often
hear a. rustling in the thick beds" of dry
leaves loud eno'igh to attract your at
tention from a distance of fifteen or
twenty rods. A cautious approach to
tiro spot will show 3-011 a couple of chip
mucks chasing each other round and
round through the leaves. They -aM
cease from tiieir sports as you come
near, hut if you sit down quietly tlioy
will soon conclude that you are not dan
gerous, and commence again. Tliey
often include the trunk of a fallen tre'e
in their circuit, running along its whole
length ; then plunging like divers into
the leaves, they rush headlong through
them, seeij.ing greatly to enjoy the noise
and r-tir which lliey'inake. 'They play
in this way for hours. If one stops, the
other turns back to look for him, and
away they go ngain. The chipmuck
can climb as well as any squirrel, and
frequently docs so when the coiist is
clear, but if danger threatens he makes
haste to descend. lie never can realize
that a tree affords him the least security.
If you get so near before he sees you
that lie dares not c:nie down, he plainly
consides the situation to be very seri
ous. Sometimes he will make a desper
ate rush for the ground within reach of
your hand, and as soon as you withdraw
he conies down and scampers away, evi
dently feeling that he lias got well out
of a bad scrape. Let hi.s large cousins
red, black or gray depend on trees

The second commandment not only
forbids worshiping graven images, bat
it forbids making them. At the time
when the commandment was given the
tendency to the worship of images was
so strong that oven tho making of them
could not bo allowed. That danger hav
ing passed away from us, the prohibit ion
has pi'sscd away for ns, for the divine
precepts are not arbitral-, but reason
able. When a daugerous road has
been repaired, the sign, " No passing ,

commandment, " Thou shait not make
any graven image;" wo respond,
"Lord, incline our hearts to keep ihi3

into other forms, prohibiting idols of
the imagination, idols of the iutellect,

Terrors or the Simoom.
The " simoom," or poison wind, of
Arabia is a serious affair to the travelers
caught iu it. The center of tho column
of wind ib composed of a poisonous gas,
to brenthe which is death. Hound this
center there eddy violent gusts of heated
and impregnated air, like that of a fur
nace. It approaches slowly, amid the
whirl of air currents that precedes it for
home distance. During its presonce the
only chance of preserving life is found
in covering the face with a cloth, and
lying prone on the sand, inhaling what
little pure air may be found next tho
earth. Meanwhile, the feeling of the
chest is that of suffocation, and that in
the limbs as if molten iron was being
poured over them. Camels instinctively
bury their nozzles in the sand ; but
horses do not possess tho same preserv
atory instincts, and they porish in con
sequence. Cor I'oagli Ilitlaam

The Lunar Weather Theory.
The general principles of the lunar
theory as to the weather arc thus stated
by Claudius Ptolemy, ns quoted by Mr.
A. J. Pearce in his "Weather Guide
Book," according to Astro-Meteorology :
" The moon's course is to be carefully
observed at the third day before or after
her conjunction with the sun (uew
moon), her opposition (full moon), and
her intermediate quarters; for iff she
then shines thinandclear, with no otheiH
phenomena about iter, she muicates se
renity ; but if she appears thin and'red,
and have her whole illuminated part
visible, and in a stato of vibration, she
portends winds from the quarter of her
latitude and declination ; and if she ap
pear dark or pale and thick, sho threat
ens storms and showers. All halos
formed around the moon should also be
observed, for if there appears one only,
bright and clear, and decaying by de
grees, it promises cercne weather; but
if two or thitv appear, tempests are in
dicated ; and if thoy seem reddish and
broken they threaten tempests, with
violent and boisterous winds: if dark
and thick thej' foreshow storms and
snow ; if pale, or black and broken, tem
pests with winds and snow, both ; and
whenever a great number appear,
storms of greater furv tire portended."

Jefca the Baptist ad Jesas Christ.
John the Baptist and Jesus the
Christ, in their relations to one an
other, are the symbols of great and
eternal facts in religious truth and ex
perience. These two figures and theso
two lives pass before us like a beauti
ful and instructive allegory. On tho
one hand, wo seo starting up in the
wilderness a wild, rude form, wrapped
in a coarse blanket, with a countenance
expressive of spiritual sadness and
wearing the traces of ascotio habit.
The desert resounds with his stern ac
cents, and all hearts fall under his
sctttcliiug and unsparing exposure of

with which it is commissioned to work
in awakened consciences?
And now this other fignro, which
cornea treading in tho footsteps of tho
desert preacher. On Bis faco is a most
winning light. His voice is sweet and
low, His food and dress ore those of
other men, His way is among their
homes and haunts; He gives His sanc
tion to social and domestic life; he is
the healer of the blind, tho leprous and
the demoniac; on His lips is the word of
pardon and peace; He comes to seek
and to save tbat which was lost. He is
more than the type, He is tho incarnate
realization, of the Gospel. Ho repre

The Sin or the Pharisee.".
A school of poor children, having rend
in the Bible the denunciations against
hypocrites who "strain at a gnat and
swallow a camel," were afterward ex
amined by n benevolent patroness as to
their recollections of the chapter.
" What, in particular, was the sin of the
Pharisees, children ?" "Aiting camels,
my lady," was the prompt reply.
